Blue-Gold scrimmage set for Saturday at 1 p.m. in Fleming Gym
GREENSBORO, N.C. – The UNCG men's basketball squad will play its annual Blue-Gold scrimmage on Saturday afternoon in Fleming Gymnasium beginning at 1 p.m.
The scrimmage is free and open to the public. The rosters for the scrimmage will be set by the coaching staff later this week. The Spartans are slated to scrimmage for about 90 minutes. It will be the team's second open scrimmage of the preseason, having done so for 30 minutes during last Sunday's GO BLUE Preview at the Greensboro Coliseum.
The Spartans return 2009-10 SoCon All-Freshman selection Kyle Randall, along with fifth-year senior Brandon Evans, sophomore guard Korey Van Dussen and sophomore forward Brian Cole. Coach Mike Dement also welcomes six newcomers to the lineup – the frontcourt of Cody Henegar, Aaron Brackett and Aloysius Henry and backcourt members David Williams, Drew Parker and Trevis Simpson.
Randall will not play in the scrimmage on Saturday as he will be attending the NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum in Orlando, Fla.
The Spartans will open the season on the road at VCU, Friday, Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. The homeopener – one of 15 home dates for the Spartans in the 2010-11 season – is slated for Sunday, Nov. 14, against Florida State at 3:30 p.m. Moses Cone Health Care System is the presenting sponsor for the 2010-11 season.
